Kyrie Irving, Ricky Rubio headline NBA All-Rookie Teams

Hello World!

Cleveland Cavaliers’ dynamic point guard Kyrie Irving and Minnesota Timberwolves’ equally electrifying floor general Ricky Rubio headline the 2012 NBA All-Rookie Teams that were announced by the league this afternoon.

Irving, the 2012 NBA Rookie of the Year, joins Rubio, Golden State Warriors’ shooting guard Klay Thompson, Denver Nuggets’ power forward Kenneth Faried, New York Knicks’ combo-guard Iman Shumpert, San Antonio Spurs’ small forward Kawhi Leonard and Detroit Pistons’ point guard Brandon Knight as members of the First Team.

Houston Rocket’s small forward Chandler Parsons leads the NBA All-Rookie Second Team joined by Sacramento Kings’ point man Isaiah Thomas, New Jersey Nets’ shooting guard MarShon Brooks, Minnesota Timberwolves’ small forward Derrick Williams and Cleveland Cavaliers’ power forward Tristan Thompson.

Leonard remains the sole rookie left playing this season as his Spurs took out the Los Angeles Clippers in 4 games of the Western Conference Semifinals this past week.
